2019 Reagan Day Dinner

Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

The ballroom at Stones River Country Club was packed with Republicans of all ages, including numerous elected officials: city councilmen, county commissioners, state legislators, state senators, judges, and numerous other city and county officials. All were eager to hear Key Note Speaker Lt. Colonel Allen West, political commentator, retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, author, and former member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Through his friendship with Donna and Ronnie Barrett (best known for the Barrett rife), West agreed to attend, waiving his speaking fees. The crowd was hanging on his every word.

This yearly event raises funds which support free events, presented throughout the year. New members are always welcome to join.
